i was scared of this one, i have avoided this one for ten years, but i had tryed all the outhers so i figured why not try this one, i found that i have been mising out, this one is like peach pie in a glass, the lambic is nice and the peach starts nice and tart and fades into pure sweetness, i will get this one agan and agan for sure.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12oz bottle, capped and corked

Apperance: Minimal head retention, but a nice foamy lace. Color is a cloudy peach and golden yellow.

Nose: Obviously I got a lot of fresh peaches. It isnt the outside of the peach, its the inner scent. Its tart as well.

Taste: It's wierd, this brew, and most fruit lambics taste like flavored fruit soda. This was no exception. I obviously got a lot of nice peach flavor. So i dont know if this means the soda makers have the taste of peach down to a tee, or if Lindemans actually used real peaches. Its basically sweet, peach, beer, sticky aftertaste.

Notes: Awsome, but only by heritage. I love the drink, hate the price.

Had this at Alisal Cellars in Solvang, CA USA.

A - Orangy gold in the glass with a decent ehad and amazing lacing.

S - Super over-the-top peach scent, from a mile away even after it sat for about 20 minutes.

T - This tastes like peach juice, not beer. A bit sour and ridiculously sweet. If I was rating juice the taste would get a 5.0.

M - Mid-full.

D - Drinkable only if you like soda, juice or cough syrup...all of which I love, but even MY mouth puckered up on this one.

This was my first Lambic and I don't think I was prepared, lol.

My first lambic review, so bear with me.
A: Pours a clear orangey gold color. No real head seen, no lacing. Clear, no sediment noted. Tiny bubbles (sorry for the Don Ho moment, but that's what they are) rise in the glass.
S: Fresh real peaches. The fruity smell tends to overwhelm everything at first, but some faint traces of malt come through after this one warms a bit. Smells a bit sour.
T: Wonderful real peachy flavor. Doesn't taste artificial or overly sweet at all. Sour taste underlies everything but isn't too overt. Mellow sweet sort of aftertaste.
M: Astringent, just a bit on the dry side. Feels more like a wine than a beer.
D&N: I had to actually ask the barkeep if this was a beer or not, it's quite different than anything I've had so far. He assured me that it was, so there you are. Not something I would have expected. There aren't the classic "beer" things here. Maltiness, hoppiness, this is just plain different. In a completely wonderful way. This is incredible. The only reason I withheld a perfect five was the price. Ten bucks a bottle is quite steep.

3.83/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

355ml corked capped and foiled bottle. Poured into a pint glass. Slightly hazy light amber with a bubbly thin head that soon disappeared.

Smelled of musty fruit with some sour notes. Milt fruity flavour. Somewhat undifferentiated. Mildly tart at the end with a sweet finish.

Medium body. The carbonation balances the taste well. Not bad overall. Not one of Lindemans stronger offerings. Overly sweet for me, although some might prefer it. Kind of a turned down fruit lambic with turned up sweetness.

Good Stuff.

Tasted like juice, I couldn't find the 'beer' in it. Smelled amazing, tasted just as it smelled. Lots of fruit juices. I couldn't specifically pick out the peach but it was definitely in there somewhere. This was very comparable to the Leinenkugel's Berry Weis for me. Only the Lambic was smoother/ easier to drink and tasted less sprakling. I would recommend this beer to all. I wish it had a higher ABV though.

3.8/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured a deep gold with some bubbles on top
Smell was of sweet peaches
Taste was good. It was sweet but not sickeningly sweet. There was a nice amount of peach flavor. Like a peach pie not like a raw peach if that makes sense.
Mouthfeel was a bit too carbonated but not enough to make it bad...just mediocre
Drinkability was ok... i liked the flavor and even though it was not overly sweet the sweetness might get to you after a few of these and the carbonation definately detracts.

First time for me on a Belgium Lambic, and I must say I was quite impressed.

Smooth body, a very drinkable beer. Nice tart peach aroma. Indeed not a typical "beer-like" taste, smell, or feel, therefore don't drink it like you would a porter (i.e. a dessert-type beer, not a drink with "meat and potatoes" beer).

Excellent purchase (albiet pricey).

This was a really sweet beer. Not as sweet as Lindemans Framboise. The color was a hazy watered down orangish color. The smell was that of fresh peaches. It was very clean smelling. The taste was also very clean with a mild peach taste and a slight sourness and acidic taste. A most enjoyable drink. Im not a big fan of the sweet drinks but this one isnt too sweet, and that makes it an agreeable dessert drink.

Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves nice lace patterns on the glass.

There is a lightly tart character to the nose that is joined by a touch of malt and a crate of peaches. What a sweet sweet nose--like an over ripe peach.

This is a very sweet beer. The fruit taste overwhlems everything else but that is okay. This is like eating peach candy--without the residual sugar in the mouth. Interesting.

Thie is a thin beer that is lightly carbonated and smooth on the pallate. Despite the sweetness, it is still eay to consume. Good stuff.

I could easily drink this beauty in the spring and summer with an assortment of light dishes. It is almost like a peach soda that has a fine balance of sweet and tart. Nice stuff.
